The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), along with vice-chancellors of universities, rectors of polytechnics, and provosts of colleges of education, will convene on July 18, 2024, to establish the minimum benchmarks for admissions into tertiary institutions in Nigeria.

The upcoming meeting, to be chaired by the Minister of Education, Prof. Tahir Mamman, aims to determine the cut-off marks for the 2024/2025 academic session. This decision-making process involves a thorough analysis of performance data from the recently concluded Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), which JAMB released on April 29, 2024.

In the 2024 UTME, out of 1,904,189 candidates, only 8,401 scored 300 and above, while 77,070 scored 250 and above. A total of 439,974 candidates achieved scores of 200 and above, and the majority, 1,402,490 candidates, scored below the 200 pass mark.

The July 18 meeting will include a detailed presentation by the JAMB Registrar on the UTME results and the ongoing Direct Entry applications. The Registrar will also analyze key performance indicators to inform the government's policy directions on admissions.

According to a notice seen by our correspondent in Abuja, "During the exercise, the Registrar will present reports on the just-concluded Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination and the ongoing Direct Entry applications, while also analyzing key performance indicators that could shape the policy directions of the government in the area of admission."

The meeting will also review issues from previous years' admission exercises to improve this year's process. Stakeholders will discuss candidates' performance in the current UTME to set the minimum admissible score for 2024.

Historically, stakeholders have agreed on minimum admission requirements for universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education. This year’s meeting will finalize these requirements and initiate the admission process for the current academic year.

The decisions made at this meeting are crucial as they will impact the prospects of millions of candidates seeking admission into Nigeria’s higher education institutions.
